Google, in partnership with The Entrepreneurs Club and General Assembly, launched the Hong Kong leg of Women Entrepreneurs Online (WEO) at co-working space Cocoon. It kicked off with a press conference and panel discussion on the challenges women entrepreneurs face when setting up in Hong Kong. Louisa participated in the panel discussion and can be seen helping to launch the programme here.
There followed a three part training summit for SMEs including: “Getting Your Business Online”,“Marketing Your Business”, and “Legal Aspects to Doing Business Online”. The group will host an additional five events in 2013 including two training workshops and three networking events featuring local small business leaders. The training workshops will revolve around how to use the Internet to grow and the networking events will allow women-owned SMEs to connect and help each other succeed as well as be inspired by successful local women entrepreneurs.
